How to add a clock to the second monitor on Windows 11

Microsoft has made several scanners easier to use on Windows 11. Apps on Windows 11 now remember the screen on which they were opened. When a second monitor is disconnected, and then reconnected to the Windows 11 system, all apps return to the monitor they were originally open. That said, Microsoft has also made poor decisions regarding multitasking.

Clock on the second monitor on Windows 11

On Windows 10, the clock used to appear on second monitors in the system but on Windows 11, there is no clock on the second monitor. To counter this, you can install an app called ElevenClock.

Clock the second monitor on Windows 11

To get a clock on the second monitor, follow these steps.

  1. Visit the ElevenClock Github Page and download the app.
  2. Run the installer and ElevenClock will be installed.
  3. A clock will appear on your second display.

ElevenClock adds a custom clock; you can change the font used, the information displayed, and the color in which the clock is displayed. If you like the clock that ElevenClock adds, you can add it to the main monitor as well. All of this can be enabled from the app settings.

  1. Open the app settings.
  2. Scroll down to the Clock Options section.
  3. Enable the ‘Show the clock on the primary screen’ option to make it appear on the main monitor.

To customize the look of the clock, open ElevenClock options.

  1. Scroll down to the Clock Design section.
  2. Enable the ‘Use Custom Font’ option and then select a font to use.
  3. Enable the ‘Use custom font size’ option and select how large you want the clock to appear in the system tray.
  4. Enable the ‘Use default font color’ option and select a different color for the clock.
  5. Enable the ‘Use custom background color’ option and select a solid color to appear behind the clock to make it easier to read.

To hide the stock / default Windows 11 clock from the main monitor,

  1. Open the Settings app with the keyboard shortcut Win + I.
  2. Go to Personlization Options> Taskbar.
  3. Select the custom system image settings.
  4. Turn the Clock version off.


Windows users usually prefer all monitors to have a fully functional taskbar but this is something Microsoft has consistently failed to install in Windows 8 / 8.1, Windows 10, and now in Windows 11. As is the case now, users must continue to rely on third-party apps to provide them with fully functional multi-monitor installed. Microsoft has taken one step forward and then several steps back.
